I very much love this liner. I swatched it in Sephora on a whim as I was walking by the display when I was there for foundation and I was like "OMG I need this." I'm glad I did. I stays on all day with no signs of fading or flaking. I can do a great cat eye with it, and it's the only liner so far that I've been successful at pulling that off. I do store it upside down …Read more

Misc Beauty Tools - Real Techniques - Miracle Complexion Sponge

I love this sponge. Love love love. I have not tried the beauty blender, so I can't speak to the similarities or differences between the two; what I can speak to is how much I love this sponge. It applies my foundation flawlessly. It blends out my concealer flawlessly. I use it damp, barely damp (wet, squeeze, roll up on a washcloth, squeeze again), dot foundation on my face, and bounce …Read more

Lipstick - Marc Jacobs - Lovemarc Lip Gel Lipstick

Apr/19/2016

I, like many, received this as the Sephora 2016 Beauty Insider gift. It came in the color "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang", which is a lovely warmish pinky shade, matte finish. I do love this lipstick, and I'm surprised I like the color since I believe myself to look better in cool tones. It has good staying power. It is a bit drying, but it's a matte so this shocks no one. What I …Read more

Pretty good eye primer. It keeps from creasing. I may have even slept in it once (I know, so bad) and when I woke up in the morning my shadow was still in great condition. Packaging is like a lipgloss with a doefoot applicator, which is how UDPP used to be packaged sooooo long ago, and that's fine by me. Gave it 4 out of 5 lippies because blending gets a little muddy if you aren't …Read more

Palettes - Hard Candy - Top Ten Eyeshadow Palettes

Feb/25/2016

I have the Naturally Gorgeous palette, bought it on a whim because it was inexpensive, the packaging was cute and it had a shade in it that reminded me of UD's Half Baked which I've always really loved but never felt like paying UD's price for it. That was the first shade I hit pan on. I have played with all the shadows in this palette, and there are none that I would absolutely …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - Sephora Collection - Perfecting Ultra-Smoothing Primer

Feb/25/2016

I feel like this sits on top of my skin in a somewhat uncomfortable way. It does make my foundation glide on. I use a long wear foundation so I can't speak to it making my foundation last any longer. Primer or not I'm scrubbing plenty of foundation off my face at the end of the night. I'm on the fence about this primer. I'm on the fence about foundation primers in general …Read more

Primer/ Corrector - benefit Cosmetics - "That Gal" Brightening Face Primer

Feb/25/2016

This is an okay primer. I noticed other people saying it has a scent, I don't smell anything at all. I got this as a sample and I like the squeeze tube over the packaging of the full size product. I like the way it feels on my skin. It's tinted pink, but I don't notice any color at all once it's applied. It does help my foundation apply a little more smoothly, but it's …Read more

Liquid - NYX Professional Makeup - Stay Matte but Not Flat Liquid Foundation

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/23/2016

I wanted to love this. It's matte, which I like, I prefer that over a dewy finish. I can add sparkle if I need or want to. I bought the shade right in the middle and it was a PERFECT color match. The problems though, did not outweigh the positives. First of all, it got all flaky and gross after a couple hours. To the point where my husband noticed, and he doesn't even know what …Read more

Feb/23/2016

I have seen Youtube Gurus and forum board posters rave about this product for years, and when I saw it in my local CVS I snatched it right up. I use it as a base for work looks (when I don't want to use my very expensive UDPP since my work looks are really neutral and uncomplicated) and it prevents creasing. I will also sometimes put it over UDPP to make my shadows pop extra. I have tried it …Read more
